Wader seam sealer
Was wearing my breathables last weekend and I am pretty sure I have a small leak in the crotch area of the waders. Nothing big and nothing is that would ruin a hunt but something I would like to fix. Always used Aquaseal to fix stuff like this but it is thick. Anyone ever try a seam sealer that would be used on tents and what not? I want something that flows more like water and will get into pinholes and other areas where leaks are

Any suggestions?

You can thin Aquaseal with toluene. You want good ventilation!

They actually sell a thinner called something like "COTOL 240" as a thinner in Fly Shops, but I don't think it contains anything but toluene. The thinned AS also sets more quickly, but you'll still have plenty of time to work.
